Sentry Meetup at Strata + Hadoop World 2013

Meetup Details and Exact Location Here

Join us for the inaugural Apache Sentry meetup at Oracle's offices in NYC, on the evening of the last day of Strata + Hadoop World 2013 in New York. 

(@ Oracle Offices, 120 Park Ave, 26th Floor -- Note: Bring your ID and check in with security in the lobby!)

We'll kick-off the meetup with the following presentation:

Getting Serious about Security with Sentry

Presenters: 
Shreepadma Venugopalan - Lead Engineer for Sentry
Arvind Prabhakar - Engineering Manager for Sentry 
Jacco Draaijer - Development Manager for Oracle Big Data

Apache Hadoop offers strong support for authentication and coarse grained authorization - but this is not necessarily enough to meet the demands of enterprise applications and compliance requirements. Providing fine-grained access to data will enable organizations to store more sensitive information in Hadoop; only those users with the appropriate privileges will ever see that sensitive data.

Cloudera and Oracle are taking the lead on Sentry - a new open source authorization module that integrates with Hadoop-based SQL query engines. Key developers for the project will provide details on its implementation, including:

-Motivations for the project
-Key requirements that Sentry satisfies
-Utilizing Sentry in your applications
-Future plans
